With its native ad blocker, Opera for computers speeds up page loading by as much as 89%, compared to browsing without ad blocking, and up to 45% compared to browsers with third-party ad-blocking extensions, the software company further says.

Opera says its built-in ad blocker can be enabled with a single click in setting just by tapping the data-savings summary under the “O” menu in Opera Mini and on iOS, ad blocking is available in Opera Turbo savings mode, and also in Android, it is available in both savings modes, from which users can simply toggle “Block ads” on or off.

To deactivate it for a specific website, click the shield icon in the search and address bar and flip the switch. The dialog shows statistics on how many ads you’ve blocked overall, as well as on the current page. You can also compare the webpage’s load speed with and without blocking, Opera adds.
